With all that seems to be wrong in our world, there are still some great things to be thankful for. At least in the spiritual sense. Technology is, in many ways, the culprit of many of our society’s problems. However, there are many ways that technology has been redeemed. At our fingertips, there are a great deal of ways that we can enhance our spiritual growth.
For those who want to deepen their prayer life as well as their knowledge of God’s Word, there are many apps and websites to help. We have been in our Holy Moments Series for the last month and we have talked a lot about creating Holy Moments in our life. In essence, we must create a spiritual space daily that we seek to spend time in God’s presence and in His Word.
For me, I use many different apps or websites as a part of my regular study. Below are some of my favorites.
BibleGateway.com: A searchable online Bible in over 150 versions and 50 languages.
Bible Gateway is also available as an app for iPhone as well as Android.
Bible Search and Study Tools - Blue Letter Bible
Blue Letter Bible has interlinear Bibles to study the original Hebrew and Greek that the Bible was written in. There are also commentaries, cross-reference resources and more. This is my #1 study tool.
Blue Letter Bible is also available as an app for iPhone as well as Android.
Open Bible is a website that helps you study by topics. It is simple to use and gives you a great deal of Bible references that go along with any topic you desire to study in the Bible. I believe there is also an iPhone and Android app available.
The Bible App – You Version (Free) There a many Bible translations, videos, and Bible Plans. You can also listen to the Bible as you read it. RFA also publishes our sermon notes on the Bible App every service. To find the notes: Click on the menu and you will notice many options come up. Pick EVENTS from the menu. Type in Rogers First Assembly or RFA. Choose either: Sunday mornings @ RFA or Wednesdays @ RFA. You can follow along there.

Bible Reading Checklist App (Free) for Android and iPhone. This is a simple checklist to helps you check off your Bible Reading progress.

Audio Bible apps:
The Dwell Bible – is my new favorite. Available on Apple or Android. There is an annual fee ($30)
Bible Gateway (Free) but if you subscribe it opens more resources, including audio Bibles.
Streetlights app – New Living Translation Audio Bible. It has a hip-hop flare to the background music. It is free. Pretty cool way to listen to your Bible.
Prayer Mate (Free) for Android and iPhone. It helps you make a prayer list, as well as offers different prayer points that you can make a part of your daily prayer time. I have been using this for many years.
I pray these resources help you as you create Holy Moments in your life.
